BOTOX® Cosmetic in Beverly Hills
Millions of patients undergo BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments every year to minimize facial wrinkles and achieve a more youthful appearance. This prescription facial injectable can reduce facial wrinkles in the forehead, brow, and eye areas as well as muscle bands on the neck.
Dr. Chiu performs BOTOX® Cosmetic injections at his Beverly Hills practice on women and men who desire facial rejuvenation. Every patient receives a customized treatment that leads to personalized, youthful, and natural-looking results.
What Areas Does BOTOX® Cosmetic Treat?
Lines and wrinkles that appear on the forehead can give you a harsh, aged appearance. In some individuals, these lines can appear at a very young age. Patients who have deep forehead lines may look perpetually tired and older than they feel. BOTOX® Cosmetic can treat unwanted lines and wrinkles on the forehead and give you a softer, more youthful appearance.
Frown lines are vertical wrinkles that appear between the brows. Caused by frequent muscle contractions from making certain facial expressions over time, frown lines can make you look angry and unapproachable. BOTOX® Cosmetic can smooth out this area so that the face appears softer, more relaxed, and more approachable.
Crow’s Feet (Smile Lines)
Crow’s feet, also called smile lines, are small wrinkles that appear at the outer corners of the eyes. These lines are often among the first signs of facial aging. BOTOX® Cosmetic can minimize aging by eliminating these lines so that the eyes become more of a youthful and attractive focal point on the face.
Neck Muscle Bands
Neck muscle bands are another sign of aging. The appearance of the neck plays a critical role in the way that others perceive you and your age. Dr. Chiu uses BOTOX® Cosmetic to minimize neck muscle bands so that the neck appears smoother and more youthful.
What Does My BOTOX® Cosmetic Recovery Look Like?
No downtime. Patients can resume normal activities right away but should avoid rubbing the treated area and avoid lying down for a few hours. Some bruising, pain, or inflammation may occur as side effects.
3 to 5 Days
Results will begin to be noticeable.
7 to 10 Days
The maximum effect of your BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments will become apparent. Skin smoothness in the treated areas will last for several months.
Patients should undergo repeat treatment to maintain the results. Otherwise, lines and wrinkles will begin to return and appear as they did before treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic.
